When Sony spun off its notebook PC business, the new company decided to concentrate its efforts exclusively on the Japanese market at first. However, the company has finally decided to spread its wings as it recently revealed its plans to bring the VAIO brand back to the US market this October.
VAIO will begin selling the new Z Canvas model in the US market starting this October. The Z Canvas PC will be sold online as well as through Microsoft Stores across the US. The model features a 12.1-inch display with 2560 x 1704 resolution, capable of reproducing 95 per cent of the AdobeRGB color gamut. You will also find a 5th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, second-gen high-speed solid state drive, and an aluminum-carbon construction. Prices are expected to start at $2,200 for the base configuration.
The company is also planning to sell a thinner notebook with cellular connectivity in the near future. Apart from notebooks, VAIO is also looking at branching out to other areas such as communication devices, wearable gadgets, and factory-automation machines with artificial intelligence. Currently, VAIO is busy building a line of robots.
